The host-pathogen interaction is as a key feature during the formation of tissue cysts of Toxoplasma gondii within intermediate hosts. In this study, we investigated whether oral infection of lambs with T. gondii oocysts may be used as an experimental model in sheep to study this interaction, with the main objective being to detect the presence and distribution of lesions and parasite within different organs at different time points after oral infection. Lambs were infected with 5 × 10(3) and 5… CONTINUE READING
